Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandi | 10/4/2013

    " Rumpole travels to Africa, takes on the art world, defends a country squiress, and figures out an ingenius way to collect the fees that are owed him in this collection of short tales, read by Bill Wallis, featuring the always entertaining legal eagle and his cohorts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 12/26/2012

    " I love these Rumpole stories--and in this volume, he "dies", takes a trip to Africa, and continues his defense of the various members of the Timson family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 11/10/2011

    " I don't know how I missed this one. It reminds me ow good the series is and makes me want to go back for a re-read and a re-watch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 4/15/2011

    " I really enjoyed this case & became quite absorbed in it. The narrator Bill Wallis did a great job with the various accents. "

    " I think the best of the Rumpole series...

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leann | 2/22/2011

    " LIstened to this on CD. It took a while to get into it because of a lot of back story and getting used to listening to the reader. It was enjoyable and the reader did a great job at the different voices. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesa | 11/22/2010

    " After hearing so much about Rumpole's infamous involvement in the Penge Benge Bungalow murders, I was happy to finally find out what actually happened. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bradley | 8/13/2010

    " A delight! We learn of Rumpole's first days as a "white wig" young barrister at the Old Bailey. He tries his first case for the Timson family, meets Hilda, She Who Must Be Obeyed, and stands alone for the defence in a double murder case. Better than a bottle of Chateau Thames Embankment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 5/30/2010

    " This was purely a fun read. We have watched dramatizations of the Mortimer novels on PBS, so I visualized all the characters as they were cast for those productions. For anyone who likes British comedy, this is delightful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 4/21/2010

    " Good action as usual for around the Bailey. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 4/19/2010

    " We finally learn the details of Rumpole's famous case, which he won "alone and without a leader." We also find out how he wound up with his wife Hilda, although that's not quite a satisfying. An important read for Rumpole fans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Starfish | 4/1/2010

    " My first experience of Rumpole was as a radio dramatisation. It was intolerable. Without the intrusion of actors and actresses however, he is really enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nadine | 12/28/2009

    " Fun, quick read. Think I'll try to find more of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 8/28/2009

    " To FINALLY know what happened in that greatest of cases... "
